The Jungle Book: Nouns

What is a Noun?

A noun is a word that refers to a thing (book), a person (Mowgli), an animal (panther), a place (India), a quality (strength), an idea (friendship), or an element (wind). It’s usually a single word, but not always: boy, paws, Jungle book, and time are all nouns.

There are common nouns and proper nouns. A common noun refers to a person, place, or thing but is not the name of a particular person, place, or thing. Examples are animalsunlight, and happiness. A proper noun is the name of a particular person, place, or thing; it usually begins with a capital letter: Mowgli, Rudyard Kipling and Earth are all proper nouns.
